DIETRICH: C/ DEL CONCELL DE CENT,
If high class drag’s your bag, Dietrich revives the lost art of café theatre seven days a week in glam surroundings. Admission free.
Desperate for an exhaust pipe for your second-hand Ford Capri or some black and white Slovakian pornography, then look no further than Barcelona’s oldest open-air flea market, open Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday till two. Bring a wheelbarrow.
EUSKAL ETXEA. PLACETA MONCADA,
The unpronounceable name tells you Basque cuisine is on the menu, in an eerie cavern-like atmosphere. Specializes in fish and calves, a stones throw from the Picasso museum.
BARCELONA PIPA CLUB, PLACA REIAL, METRO Liceu
Perhaps the only authentic smoking club in the city. During the day you can get your fill of politically incorrect pipe smoke. Late in the evening it transforms itself into one of the city’s most laid back all-night boozing joints.
LA PALOMA, C/ DE TIGRE,
An institution in Barcelona for over a hundred years, La Paloma kicks off with the cha-cha-cha and the can-can before moving on the tango around midnight, and if you are
up for it there is the frenetic bongo lounge till dawn. Admission 5 euro.
